World News Day, September 28, will celebrate the work of professional news organisations and the impact they make on the communities they serve.
In an age of misinformation, World News Day aims to raise public awareness of the critical role that newsrooms and journalists play in providing the public with credible and reliable news and views, to help people make sense of – and improve – the rapidly changing world around them.
These range from reports which exposed corruption and scams, to issues being neglected by society or systems not working to deliver services as well as insights on people and events shaping the course of current affairs.
We invite your newsrooms to contribute to the World News Day, an initiative presented by WAN-IFRA, the World Editors Forum and the Canadian Journalism Foundation. #NewsMatters
